Project Propeller 2017

Project Propeller is an annual reunion for 150+ WWII aircrew, to which they are flown from all over the UK in light aircraft by current volunteer pilots. The Evening Standard described it rather well here, Flyer magazine here and the D/Telegraph here.

VENUE: Project Propeller is pleased to announce that our next event will be held at:

GLOUCESTER AIRPORT (STAVERTON - EGBJ) on SUNDAY 25 JUNE 2017

Opened in 1931, Gloucester Airport was known as RAF Staverton during the war. The RAF took over the site in 1936 and used it as a training school until August 1946. The airfield was used by a number of units and flights, including the No44 Group Communication Flight. A satellite strip of RAF Staverton at Brockworth hosted the first flight of the Gloster E28/39 jet aircraft.

The airfield is now home to the Jet Age Museum, which you will be able to visit on the day.

REGISTRATION: Whether you are a former WWII aircrew member (friend or former foe), a current qualified pilot willing to fly in a veteran, or a volunteer helper, we invite you to join us by registering for the ultimate WWII aircrew reunion.

BRIEFING NOTES: Registered volunteer pilots should consult the Gloucester Airport Briefing Notes

SLOT TIMES: Slot times are here.
